library story walk

(EATON, CO) – The Eaton Public Library is excited to welcome children and families to interact with the new outdoor Story Walk installation. This display features 20 panels at Eaton Town Square, each with a page from a book. The first story featured is a classic, Wiggle, by Doreen Cronin, and it is available for viewing now. It highlights different movements to get children engaged and interacting with the story … or wiggling! The stories will be updated seasonally, with four planned each year, and will highlight books that include movement and action to encourage an interactive reading experience. 

“We are so excited to have this installation live and accessible to all the young readers of our community,” Library Director Amber Greene said. “Our hope is that children will love being active and improving their literacy at the same time.” 

The project was completed with library funds dedicated to community engagement and outreach. While seeing smiling faces at the library is great, the hope is to encourage families to get out and move around town. Literacy skills can be built everywhere, including the park! The next story will be installed in April and is called Wonder Walkers by Micha Archer, about two curious kids out on a walk who encounter the splendors of nature and let their imaginations soar. 

The new Story Walk is just one creative way the Eaton Public Library works to connect with residents and promote literacy. We hope everyone gets a chance to visit the Story Walk and the library for more storybook fun! Check out to learn about other programs and events.
